IRON MAN (2008)

Marvel’s first self-funded flick was a decade or so in the making and had pre-echoes of later instalments. The Mandarin, for instance, mooted as a possible big bad in early drafts, is Easter-egged via a Ten Rings banner in the Afghanistan cave scenes. Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. also turned to future Shellhead helmer Shane Black for script advice. “When Tony Stark comes back from captivity and calls a press conference”, says RDJ, “the speech he gives all came from Shane.”

Time for another work experience bod to check some facts I think - Theron (Dominic West) didn't trot off to fight Xerxes! He stayed at home to lock "horns" with Cersei! More
